    Objective. There are indications in prior studies showing that STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) has a positive effect on learning. This bachelor’s thesis took account of adding art component to STEM and found out how often STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) in elementary school’s mathematics appears in present studies. Method. In this thesis the material was collected by using the systematic review. After that, four peer reviewed English studies were filtered to the examination. They all connected with STEAM education somehow. Two of the studies related to the teachers, one to the pupils and one to the teacher students. The studies were American and Korean. Results and conclusions. Studies related to STEAM education in elementary school’s mathematics was found only few. There could have been more results, if defining was wider. However the results were interesting: Especially male teacher’s attitudes towards STEAM education were positive. Furthermore the know-how of the pupils was improved when the art component was added to the STEM education.
